A pot of Desi Gheo
Akhand Kirtan was going on and Bhai Sahib along with other Gursikhs was sitting in spiritual bliss. A Gursikh brought a pot of Desi Gheo and offered it to Guru Sahib while matha tek. Another Gursikh who was sitting in Sangat thought that if he could have the pot, his winter would pass quite comfortably. At the conclusion of the Samagam, Bhai Sahib jee called that Gursikh and asked him to go ahead and take the pot of Gheo for himself.
Just as that Gursikh was going to move forward to pick the pot, Bhai Sahib admonished him saying that this pot of Gheo had been offered by a Gursikh who was suffering from the terrible disease of Leprosy and he had offered it as part of Ardaas to get cured of this disease and now if one Gursikh, out of greediness, was to consume the whole pot of gheo, he would have to share that disease. When that Gursikh heard Bhai Sahib’s Bachan, he cried out loudly that he did not want even one spoon of that Gheo and everyone there laughed heartily.
This Saakhi shows the Avastha in which Bhai Sahib was living and that while we should surely partake Langar but we should not become greedy and think that we should get a bigger share of Langar. Everything in Langar should be eaten by proper sharing.
